Red Carpet: Bella Thorne’s Homage To Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

TMNT-Bella-Thorne-1

I am an Eighties baby, so I am pretty excited about the return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the trailer looks amazing and I am so please to see Megan Fox back. The LA premiere took place over the weekend and I was going to share Megan’s sexy white Marc Jacobs mini, but then I saw Disney starlet Bella Thorne rocking a vintage 80s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tee and I actually squealed it is so cool.

Bella who wasn’t even born in the 80s **totally makes me feel old** glammed up her look with a sexy H&M black leather mini skirt, caged black Gucci heels and a coordinated patent black and green Edie Parker clutch.

I love that this look is so teen appropriate, especially with the fact that she customised the vintage tee with gold studs on the sleeves and slashed the neckline to wear across her shoulders, it totally takes me back to my 16-year-old days where I customise everything. I also adore the green colour of the T-shirt against her strawberry blonde locks. 

I know some might say this look is too casual for a red carpet, I would agree if the film wasn’t TMNT, it is fun not a heavy drama, and I love that she got into the spirit by showing off the original Turtles cartoon characters. 

I think if Bella can keep bringing her personality to the red carpet she is certainly going to be a star to watch. I bet a lot of people **hint, hint – me** are searching eBay and etsy right now to find their own TMNT tee to customise!!!

What do you think of Bella’s homage to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Cannes 2014: All About Blake Lively…Oh & Ryan Reynolds

There aren’t many actress that have really posses that Old Hollywood magic any more, that can leave you speechless and wanting more – the red carpet has become a little predictable, we all know that Jennifer Lawrence will more than likely wear Dior, and I suppose it had to happen with the importance of a stylist, a lot is riding on celebrities appearances. Which is why I am so glad that Blake Lively keeps me guessing, surprises me with her choices, and always hits the red carpet looking elegant, sexy and glamorous.

This is why the Cannes Film Festival this year really does belong to the Gossip Girls’ star, Blake has wowed on every appearance and even though she is the face of a Gucci fragrance, you know that isn’t her only go-to designer, OK it is a lot, but not always. Following on from her fabulous appearance at the Met Gala Blake really seems to be on a roll and when Gucci are providing gowns like this it is no wonder she keeps on wearing them.

Her first look was probably my favourite of her Cannes red carpet appearances, the two-tone bordeaux silk-chiffon Gucci Premiere gown that she wore to the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere was just divine. Not only was it interesting with its geometric neckline and open back but I adore the elegance of the pleats teamed with the sexiness of that thigh-high split, plus it really did fit her beautifully. This was also probably one of my favourite hairstyles that she sported as well, that messy high braided ponytail looks like it was taken off the SS14 runways.

 

Look two was very different from the first, very fashion-forward and totally stunning – wearing an iridescent ankle-length Chanel Couture dress embellished with sequins, tulle and organza embroideries from the spring/summer 2014 collection. Not many actresses could pull off this look, I actually thought that Keira Knightley would have optioned this beauty, but I think Blake carries it off well, but I do think that it would have worked better on someone not quite as busty. What I do love about this look though is the styling, it is basically a carbon-copy of the what walked down the runway, complete with a silk kimono draped around her arms.

 

I think look three, another Gucci Premiere gown will have a lot of people gushing, might be more about her date than the dress, there is no denying what a gorgeous couple Blake and Ryan Reynolds make. Supporting her man at his ‘Captives’ premiere, Blake really did shine in this strapless black and white silk crepe fifties inspired evening gown – I love everything about it – from the silhouette complete with a full skirt and a dramatic train to the styling of the Lorraine Schwartz diamonds on her necklaces, earrings, bracelet and engagement ring. For me this look is what Cannes is all about, big, dramatic and show-stopping.

Ryan didn’t look half bad either in his Gucci black satin peak lapel one button Signoria tuxedo – I love the white shirt, white bow-tie combination. Is there a better looking couple out there at the moment?

Which of Blake’s three looks was your favourite?

 

Maleficent: Angelina Jolie In Atelier Versace

Maleficent-angelina-jolie-1Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At Disney’s “Maleficent” red carpet event at Kensington Palace in London to showcase the costumes from the film

Wearing: A black custom-made Atelier Versace gown with plunging v-neckline to the front and back, sheer long sleeves and embellished with Swarovski crystals, teamed with black heels and minimal accessories

Verdict: If I had just seen this look on a photograph I might have just quickly dismissed it with, yeah it is flawless as always but feels like she has done it before, but because I was at the red carpet event and saw her wearing this exquisite embellished gown I was in awe at how beautiful she looked. Everything from her sleek up-do, dramatic eyes, and her coordinated man, Brad Pitt, wearing a black Gucci suit on her arm was just to show off this incredible gown that really did shimmer.

Granted I do feel like I have seen this dress before, it is like a black version of this Elie Saab and it is quite similar to this Atelier Versace gown she wore last year, but I still think it is gorgeous. The front of the dress was nice, but for me it was all about the deep-V to the back, the draping is just divine and I loved that the entire gown was dripping in Swarovski crystals.

Everyone who saw her last night was saying that there aren’t that many real superstars left in acting anymore and I quite agree – the actress spent about an hour on the red carpet and I was captivated by her demure, gracious and charming personality as she did interviews and signed fans autographs. Not going to lie but I was totally under Angie’s spell!!!

SAG Awards: Trend – Various Shades Of Blue

463563745

There is always something special about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, maybe it is the fact that they are all judging one another, or that the red carpet has a relaxed nature while still being uber glamorous, or that it comes so soon after the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards that I am so giddy about the award season. Whatever it is, it never seems to disappoint.

Last year it was all about Nina Dobrev’s gorgeous Elie Saab and Jennifer Garner sparkling in Oscar de la Renta, and this year it seems that all my best dressed wore hues of blue. From the gorgeous Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi to Jennifer Lawrence’s shimmering Dior Couture gown.

I was just going to do my best three looks but I have to be honest I couldn’t decide who to cut – so it is now my top 4 beauties from the SAG Awards red carpet!!!

In at number one has to be American Hustle’s Amy Adams in this Antonio Berardi gown, not only is this shade of blue divine, but the architectural neckline and shoulder cut-out detail really marries sexy and elegance all at the same time, and the fit is impeccable on her. Amy really is having a great award season.

My second best is newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, this girl continues to impress me every time she steps out onto the red carpet and this custom Gucci gown is beautiful. It isn’t often that you see turquoise on the red carpet, but this hue really shined on her, and it was made even better with those gorgeous floral embroidered straps. Another breathtaking look – I think Lupita is easily my favourite red carpet star of the moment.

Third place was a tough decision between the two Jennifer’s – from the statuesque Jennifer Garner in a custom Max Mara gown and Jennifer Lawrence in a shimmering Dior Couture number. Both are beautiful, both so different. I think the constellation of multicoloured sequins on J-Law’s gown just pips Garner as it really did shimmer on TV, but I do love the simplicity of Garner’s – that is a great silhouette on her.
